This is some serious beef

In today's news:
Even by the standards of Texas, where beef is no trivial matter, rancher Jose Antonio Elias Calles has coddled his cattle.

The animals imported from Japan are guarded by off-duty Texas Rangers and kept away from American bulls that might contaminate their coveted gene pool. They were meticulously reared for 12 years before a single hamburger could be sold.
Dude, it's beef, not Scotch. Once it's in steak form, it does not get better with age.

Humurous story however something about it doesn't seem believable. How can a farmer use "off-duty" Texas Rangers to guard his cattle when there are only about 100 Rangers for the entire state. Unlike "Walker Texas Ranger" the real Rangers don't run around the state on patrol. Well, anyway the story is still amusing.
